  • Way too young, my dad is 56 and this is freaking me out. Seems like a perfect time to go back to EarthBound.

    As someone who considers Earthbound his favorite game of all time, I'm handling this just as badly as you can imagine. According to Itoi, Iwata's programming prowess completely saved the game when it was in a really rough stage of development.

    I'm really bummed out, guys.
  • Yamauchi and Iwata both dying in the last 2 years is a pretty depressing reminder that we all have a shelf life no matter how beloved we are.
  • bros.

  • It's cross play between PS4 and PC so we could easily have a 4 person team and wreck shit.

    actually there's no cross platform parties so there goes that idea.

    @Josh @Simon you guys have PS+ right? Rocket League is free right now. We should totally play this weekend if you guys are free.
  • this game is so much fucking fun. Holy shit this is so much better than real soccer.
  • Yeah that game is really fun! Cannot hit anything in the air for shit, but still great. Could use more gametypes though...
  • me and Josh just played a few matches and talked about wrestling. It was a good time.
  • right before that I had a pretty incredible match, I uploaded it to YouTube as to be preserved.
  • Nice dude. You had some great saves and shots in the match! How is it playing online compared to just bots?
  • I've only played bots when people drop out and I'm not really a fan of their bot AI. They seem to be really dumb until they do insane bicycle kicks that very few human players can do out of nowhere.

    Y'know how I said I was going to buy a 3DS? Well, I had a sudden change of heart and bought a 60GB launch model PS3 for $170 off Craigslist that included the following games:

    Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
    Assassin's Creed 2
    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3
    Assassin's Creed
    Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection
    Gran Turismo 5
    Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe
    NInja Gaiden Sigma
    Battlefield 4
    Little Big Planet
    Assassin's Creed Revelations

    Mega internet points go to whoever guesses which game had the highest trade-in value at GameStop.
    Ultra internet points go to whoever guesses which Ass-Creed game had the highest trade-in value at GameStop.
  • 2 and Brotherhood are pretty fantastic games as easy as it is to be cynical about that franchise.

    I would guess Brotherhood has the highest trade-in value just from being the newest.
  • Ah crap, I've been busy and missed the Rocket League chat! I'm in love with this game, would be really keen to play with people I know.
  • If say Battlefield 4 for highest trade in
  • @Kyle Great stuff, Kyle. Once I get that we need to 1v1. I really hope that RL turns into an e-Sport, because there's a lot of nuance to the game and a lot of crazy shit that players can do like rocket jump and whatnot. 

    Check this stuff out.

  • @bozo Yeah people are already unfathomably good.

    @Alex good news man, you can upgrade your PS3 into a PS4 for FREE
  • @Kyle Thanks for the pro tip, brother. If you could also direct me to a site where I can download more RAM, it'd be much appreciated.

    Also, because I know you've all been waiting in suspense, here's my GameStop breakdown:

    Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection 4.00
    Battlefield 4 3.50
    Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe 3.00
    Assassin's Creed 2.00
    Little Big Planet 2.00
    NInja Gaiden Sigma 1.25
    Assassin's Creed Brotherhood - 1.00
    Assassin's Creed 2 - 1.00
    Gran Turismo 5 - 0.75
    Assassin's Creed Revelations - 0.75
    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 0.50

    $$$$ Shout out to my homie Sonic for netting me two Jefferson! $$$$

    look at how good this guy is at Rocket League. It's unfathomable.
  • edited July 2015
    How is someone already that unfathomably good this game? Like the way he sets up goals and knows exactly where to go is crazy. I try to hit something in the air like that and miss it by couple yards.
  • Kronovi is insane, but I think he and a lot of other top players migrated over from the previous game, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars.
  • Oh I see, then that makes sense. I didn't realize Rocket League was a sequel. 
  • edited July 2015
    I knew it was a sequel, but I wasn't really aware that it looks and feels almost exactly the same. Those devs have got to be flabbergasted at the response Rocket League has gotten considering the sort of middling response they got back in 2008. 

    Good on them for signing a PlayStation+ deal, I think it's genuinely helped the buzz surrounding their game.
  • this is the best thing in the world. I've watched them play like 4 hours of this already and I can't stop laughing.

  • maybe my porn fantasy of Chie & Hatsune Miku getting fucked by Grimace will finally happen now.
